Susan van Wambeck and Adriane Dedic explore what happens when they
merge, contrast, pair, or collage their individual pieces of art into a
single combined, artistic expression.
See how each artist will combine the images differently, or pair separate
works of art to make a statement about duality such as displaying Susan’s
pastel illustration of feet next to Adriane’s monoprint of shoes.
The exhibit will feature a blended portrait where elements of Adriane’s
whimsical, collage of a young girl are combined with Susan’s realistic
pastel portrait of a young woman in a Western hat. The result is intriguing
as elements from both original pieces seem to weave together mysteriously.
The exhibit opens Saturday August 16 at the Fremont Art Association
Gallery, 37659 Niles Blvd., in Fremont. Meet the artists on Sunday August
17 at the reception 1:30 to 4:30 pm.
The two artists have many things in common since both are graphic
designers, use Photoshop for artistic manipulations, and like combining
words with images. Their art mediums differ, however. Adriane uses printmaking
techniques to create original monoprints and drypoint engravings. Susan
uses pastel, acrylic, and watercolor. Both artists agree that the results
of their collaborative experiments have been surprising and inspiring.
